Beautiful Creatures Tarot, 2nd Edition
J.R. Rivera & illustrations by Jasmine Beckett-Griffith
At first look at the box I knew I had to have them. Beautiful Creatures Tarot deck comes in a colorful box suited just for this which is made of sturdy cardboard. The box will keep your cards and companion book safe while not in use.
This is the second edition by J.R. Rivera and artwork by Jasmine Becket-Griffith. The first time I held them in my hands I felt a connection to them. In the being of the companion book there are a few affirmations. This is the best one “The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.” Albert Einstein. Beauty, truth, and light: three characteristics sought after by humans, and each one more complex and elusive than the other. Tarot is, in many ways, a purveyor of beauty, truth, and light. The images are usually considered beautiful. The messages we get from the cards, we consider truth. And the wisdom and guidance, as well as spiritual lessons, we consider as light that shine, helping us along our path.
Using the Beautiful Creatures Tarot, Second Edition, will be like any other Tarot deck. It is meant to guide you and give you wise advice when you most need it. When you feel you have lost hope and have nowhere to run, these beautiful creatures are here for you. Always! For as long as you need them to be. These beautiful creatures come disguised as mystical beings such as fairies, witches, countesses, maidens, etc. Other creatures might be similar to people with whom you’ve crossed paths or people in your life.
There are keywords printed below the images for this second edition. These keywords are meant to be a pinpoint, a compass for you so you do not lose your focus or concentration on what the cards mean and the messages conveyed. After spending time working with these cards, you will see that the need to depend on keywords will no longer be an issue for you because you will have already connected with the cards on a deeper level. And this, my friends, is a step in becoming an authentic Tarot reader – by listening to your cards and what they have to say.
I highly recommend this Tarot deck for all who are interested in working with Tarot cards. It will make a great edition to your collection.
I have been given this Tarot deck from Schiffer Publishing Ltd for an honest review.
